Security and IT Operations – Can’t We All Just Get Along?

March 3, 2020

Throughout history, there have always been certain groups that – for whatever reason – can’t or won’t get along. There are several that come to mind.

There’s not a good history there.

In this episode of The Hacks, Tom and Chunga talk about the natural friction that takes place between these two groups of professionals.

Tom has some thoughts about individual responsibilities. He also has some ideas and opinions on how organizations can help lower the tension between the two sides.
